I am a 45 year old crossfitting Grandma in VA. I was a bodybuilder back in the 90's when womens bodybuilding was - well - bodybuilding, and not the figure sport it is now. I came to veganism via my health and concerns for the environment and have been vegan for about two years now. Love what its done for my overall health and I feel good about the choices I make!
I cant spend 4-6 hrs a day in the gym anymore so I crossfit - my box has a very strong oly lifting component which I love and I am getting back into shape after a couple of years off. My biggest challenge is figuring out how to get back to 15% bodyfat as a vegan. When I increase the protein to 1g/lb the added carbs increase the body fat too much - I dont have the diet figured out yet at all!
Hoping to hit a 250lb deadlift and a 225lb squat this year and want to compete in crossfit as a masters gal
and I am looking forward to participating in this forum!
